Eating Out

Eating out when you have coeliac disease can often be a nightmare. A lot of chefs don’t seem to know what Coeliac disease is, what gluten is, or what goes into their own meals. Here I hope to try and enlighten you to the best places to find gluten free food away from your own kitchen…

  1. Go for yummy Italian Gluten-Free cakes and savoury muffins in Totnes at the Curator Café, 2 The Plains, Totnes, South Devon TQ9 5DR. Thee best coffee in Totnes with Gluten Free cakes cooked on Tuesday Thursday and Saturday and Gluten Free Savoury Muffins on Wednesday and Saturdays. I went here and realised there was nothing my wife, whos coeliac could eat. I offered to make them gluten free cakes which are suitable for coeliacs and made in our own kitchen. I have experimented with many recipes collected from The River Cafe Cook Books, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Anna del Conte, Valentina Harris and Antonio Carluccio, amongst others to create a range of homely cakes that Italians would serve their children and families (as opposed to the sort of showy restaurant cakes which I am not interested in). I have been making these since September 2012 and have had such positive and appreciative feedback from so many people who are gluten free, wheat-free or newly diagnosed coeliacs who are all overjoyed to find a place that has something for them. Recently I have been experimenting with savoury cakes and found that these made as muffins are another success. Do try this fantastic café if you are in Totnes, even make it a detour if you are in South Devon.

  2. Thanks Sara! This is great. I have just moved to Barnstaple and finding GF places to eat out isn’t always easy. If I find any good places I will let you know. :)

The Royal & Fortesque do great food & can do gluten free gravy to accompany their carvery. The Custom House have delicious GF burgers including the bun. The New Inn Goodleigh make to order & are very VERY accommodating, fresh oil for chips etc. My favourite GF places to eat are in Westward Ho! Tea on the Green has a delicious selection of cakes, so many to choose from & The Pier House who have a complete GF menu offer outstanding food & a wide choice an excellent place to eat GF food. Enjoy!
